Germination: Easy germination. Best started indoors 4-6 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow seed in container on good seed starting mix. Cover seeds with mix. Moisten mix and keep mix moist until germination begins. Place container in a location at 70°F. Germination should begin in 6-10 days. Or they are very easy to grow by sowing seeds direct to sunny garden location after last spring frost, covering seeds with 1/4" to 1/2" of soil.
